Are you second-guessing your nausea and missed period? Maybe your mood is off, or you’re really tired, and you can’t quite put your finger on why. These are all early pregnancy symptoms that seem small but require pregnancy confirmation to be sure.

Thinking about a potential unplanned pregnancy can seem overwhelming. You are not alone in the waiting. We at Rockingham Pregnancy Care Center are here to help you get the answers and support you need along the way. 

Early Pregnancy Symptoms 

According to the Mayo Clinic, there are common symptoms that may point to early pregnancy. Start pregnancy confirmation with a free, medical-grade pregnancy test at our center to begin finding clarity.

A Missed Period

This pregnancy symptom is a no-brainer for some women but a complicated sign for others. If you experience irregular periods, a missed or really late period may be common for you. If irregular periods are not common for you, you could be pregnant if you are a week or more past your regular period cycle date. 

Nausea (with or without vomiting)

Also known as morning sickness, nausea with (or without vomiting) can begin one to two months after you become pregnant. It can be an inconvenient experience, especially when at work or if you are out somewhere. You could be experiencing early pregnancy if you are noticing either of these symptoms.

Tender, Swollen Breasts

Have you noticed your breasts are more tender or swollen than normal? Pregnancy could be the reason. This symptom happens as your body seeks to adjust to the pregnancy hormones. After your body adjusts to all the pregnancy hormones, the tenderness should diminish.

Increased Urination

Are you taking more trips to the bathroom? During pregnancy, the amount of blood in your body increases. This means your kidneys are processing more fluid than normal, causing increased urination. 

Take Your Next Step

We know pregnancy can seem scary right now, but try just to take one step at a time.
